The amount of sleep required by man
is generally proportionate to the waste
of vital strength, whether by muscular
exertion, mental activity (or emotion),
or by the process of rapid assimilation,
as during the first years of growth ami
during this recovery from an exhausting
disease. The weight of a new-born
child increases more rapidly than that
of a eupeptic adult, enjoying a liberal
diet altera period of starvation, and,
though an infant is incapable of form
ing abstract ideas, wo need not doubt
that thoTariciy of new and bewilder
ing impressions must overtask its little
sensorium in a few hours. Nurslings
should therefore be permitted to sleep
to their full satisfaction; wea'cly babies,
especially, need sleep more than food,
and jt is the safest plan never to dis
turb a child's slumber wh le the regu
larity ot Tils breathing indicates the
hcaltbluluess of bis repose; there is lit
tlordanger of his "oversleeping" him
.sclf.ra a moderately-warmed, well-vcn-tilated
room. 2?evcr mind about meal
times; hunger will awaken him at the
right moment, or teach him to make up
for lost time. Three or four nursing3
in the twenty-four hours arc enough;
Dr. C. K. X'agc, who has made the
Tiroblom of infant diet Ids special study,
believes that fifty per cent, of the enor
mous number of children dying under
two years of age are killed by being
coaxed to guzzle till they are hopeless
ly discaseu with fatty degeneration.
Tho hcaltlifulncss of village children
is -partly due to the tranquillity of their
slumber in the comfortable nooks of a
quiet homestead, or in the shade of a
leafy tree, while their parents are at
work in a way ratherinconipatible with
the habit of fondling the baby all night.
In houses where there is plenty of room,
the nursery and the infant's dormitory
ought to be two separate apartments;
the play-room can not be too sunny; for
the bedroom a shady and sequestered
location is, on the whole, preferable.
Next to out-door exercise, silence and a
subdued light are the best hvpnotics.
Hut under no circumstances should in
somnia be overcome by cradling or nar
cotics. Stuj.cfaction is not slumber.
The lethargy induced by rocking and
cradling is" akin to the drowsy torpor of
a sea-sick passenger, and the opium
doctor might as well benumb his pa
tient by a whack on the head. The
morbid sleeplessness of children may
be owing to several causes which can
bo generally recognized by the symp
toms of their modus operandi; impa
tient turning from side to side, as if in
n vain attempt to obtain a much-needed
repose, means that the room is too
stuffy or too warm; long wakefulness,
combined with squalling-lits and petu
lant movements, indicates acidity in the
stomach (overfeeding, or too much
"soothing-sirup""') let the little kicker
exercise his muscle on the iloor; in ma
lignant cases, skip a meal or two, or
give water instead of milk. After
weathering an attack of croup, children
often lie motionless on their backs with
a peculiar glassy stare of their wide
open eyes. Leave them alone: instinct
teaches them to assuage the distress of
their lungs by slow and deep respira
tions; rest and a half-open window will
do them more good than medicine.
Healthful iufants i. c., under ra
tional management the great plurality
can soon be taught to transact their
public business at seasonable hours, or
at .least to abstain from midnight ser
enades. If mothers would make it a
rule to do all their nursing and fondling
in the daytime their little revivalists
would soon learn to associate darknes?
with the idea of silence and slumber.
Habit will do wonders in such things.
Captain Barclay and several American
pedestrians learned to take their half
hour naps as a traveler snatches a
hasty lunch, and many old soldiers de
velop a faculty of going off to sleep, :is
it'wero, at tho word of command tho
moment their ? shoulders touch the
guardhouso bunk. The two drowsiest
years of my life T passed at an old-style
"boarding-school, where teachers and
pupils were limited to seven Jiours of
sleep after nine hours of study, besides
written exercises and special recita
tions, and where sixty or seventy, of us
had to sleep in a large hall; and I do
not believe that the 'last flickering of
our live-minutes candle was ever wit
nessed by a pair of more than half-open
But that same faculty of sleeping and
waking at short notice ruay bo utilized
for the purpose vof taking little naps
whenever opportunity offers in the
last half-hour of tho noontide recess, or
during the Buncombe interacts of a pro
tracted session. The inhabitants of all
intertropical countries make the time
orreposc a movable festival, and dur
ingHuc dog-days of our torrid summers
it would clearly be the best plan to
imitate their example. "Children
must not sleep in the daytime." says a
b--law of our time-dishonored Koran of
domestic superstitions; and, not satis
fied with keening our litt'.o ones at
school during the drowsy afternoons of
the summer solstice, we increase their
misery by stuffing them at tho very
noon of the hottest hours with a mass
ofgreasy (i. c, heat-producing and
soporific) food. An hour after the end

night-wind, Heaven s own blessing for
alCwho hunger and thirst after fresh
air;" but no, "Night air is injurious";
besides. Mrs. Grundy objects to prome
nades after dark, so -ihe children are
driven to'thcir suffocating", unventilatcd
bed-rooms, not to sleep, hut to swelter,
till toward, midnight, when drowsiness
subsides into a sort of lethargy which
yields only to broad daylight, three or
four hours after sunrise; "So much the
better," saj-s the fashionable mother,
who has passed the night in an ice
cream fidotlo, "aud morning air .isu't
healthy, either; most dangerous to
leave the house before the dew is off
tho grass."
Only the curse of pessimism, our wo
ful distrust of our natural instincts, can
explain such' absurdities. The parched
palate's petition for a cooling liquid is
not plainer than the brain's craving for
rest and slumber wen a high tempera
ture adds its somniferous tendency to
' the drowsy influence of a full meal.

hardships of his waking hours are so
intolerable that oblivion becomes a
blessing; but it can do no harm to
make the health-giving morning hour
as attractive as possible: provide some
out-door amusement, a prize foot-race,

pecially, need all the rest they can get.
Profound sleep in a cool, quiet retreat
is Nature's own specific for all wasting
diseases, a panacea without price and
Nothing can be more injudicious than
to stint children in their sleep with a

Habitual deficiency of sleep will un
dermine the strongest con-tit ution;
headache, throbbing and feverish heat
are the precursors of graver evils, un
less a temporary loss of mental power
cpmnels an armistice with out 1 aged Na
ture It is a curious fact that compul
sory wakefulness combined with mental
activity often induces a state of morbid
insomnia, an absolute inability to ob
tain the sleep which it was at first so
difficult to resist. In such cases the
only remedy is fresh air and a complete
change of occupation. During sleet)
the brain is in a comparatively blood
less condition; a hot head aud throb
bing temp'cs arc unfavorable to repose,
and it has been suggested that insomnia
might be counteracted by a hot foot
bath, chafing the arms and legs, or any
similar operation that would divert the
blood from tho head toward the extrem
ities, and thus tend to diminish the ac
tivity of the cerebral circulation. Lis
tening to distant music or tho ripple of
a river current has also a wonderful
hypnotic ellcct, the repetition of monot
onous sounds or, indeed, of any senso
rial impression, seems more favorable
to repose than their entire absence.
A .South-German feather-bed is a
Trophonian cave; the difficulty of turn
ing from side to side crowds the brain
with alarming phantasms, and the ex
ces.sivo warmth of the thing itself is
apt to affect tho imagination. The best
bed is, indeed, a hard, broad mattress,
or a well-stufl'ed straw tick, ami a
woolen blanket over a linen bed-sheet
is preferable to a quilt. Those who
find it uncomfortable to sleep in an ab
solutely horizontal position should
slightly raise the head-end of the bed
stead rather than use a thick bolster.
A thick pillow bends the head upon
the breast, or keeps the neck in a posi
tion that aggravates the distress of
respiratory difficulties. Wovon-wiro
mattresses recommend themselves hj'
their cleanliness and durability; their
olastic qualities alone would hirdly
justify a great expense, though luxury
has even devised an "hydrostatic bed,"
a trough of water with a tegument of
caoutchouc. History records the name
of theSybaritewho "cr'ctl aloud because

out-door atmosphere. Such chevaliers

Tho Boston Sunday Budget tolls the
following story: Maty years ago there
dwelt in a certain Boston street two
families which, although near neigh
bors, had no neighborly relations nor
even acquaintance. This grew out of
tho fact that while tho head of one
house let us call him dones was of
somewhat "low condition," the other,
whom we will style Pedigree, was
"upper crust, a regular patrician." It
rather troubled the dfines family to
havo tho Pedigrees treat them as though
they did .not exist; but they niauaged
to worn along, and in due timo the
Jones boys grew to be men and entered
upon the serious business of life, one of
them to such good purpose that he ac
quired wealth and became the President
of a bank. One day one of the Pedi
gree's received a check on this same
bank and stepped in to have it cashed.
The Teller was all politeness, said he
had no doubt it was all right, but added
that the rules of the bank required that
the presenter of a check should be iden
tified. Mr. Pedigree found no fault,
and added-that he had no doubt Mr.
Jones, tho President of tho bank, could
furnish the needed identification. Just
then tho President happened to pass
frum his private room, and the Teller
handed him the check and stated what
was wanted. The President took tho
check, examined the signature and the
indorsement carefully, and, looking Mr.
Pedigree straight in the face, handed it
back to the Teller and said, " I do not
know the gentleman," turned on his
heel and went about his business.

estate of Colonel Scott is large, but I
think the newspapers rate it too high.
I should put it down at about 50,000,

"Yes," chimed in the manufacturer
of lightning rods who sat by, "it is
risky some limes. The worst job I ever
had done was the rodd'ng of the Cen
tral Presbyterian Church in Fifty-seventh
Street, near Eighth Avenue.
They wouldn't have it dono when the
steeple was put up, when it would have
been easy, but after tho lightning had
given them one light touch, then they
wanted it fixed tip immediately. It
would havo cost $100 to put up scaffold
ing to do the work safely then, but
they would not pay that added sum, or
anything like iL The best they would
do" was twenty-live dollars, and it was a
puzzle to know how wo could do itior
that. J. B. Tumor, the most daring
and expert climber in the business,
probably, took tho job. He went up
tho inside of the steeple as far as he
could, forty feet from the roof, and
there poked out through two holes a
couple of scantlings, on which ho fast
ened a board. On that board he set up
a couple of scantlings with cleats
nailed aeros3 them like a ladder, nail
ing them en as he went up, and nailing
other scantlings on to the ends of those
when he got to the top. There was no
possibility of-fastcning that ladder to
tho steeple until he got up where the
steeple was so slim that he could throw
a rope around it and tie it. It was
simply leaned against tho smooth-slated
sine ot tne steeple, a pirn 01 wma or
a careless movement out of balance
would have burled him down. In that
way he worked his way up sixty feet
from the point where he started his
ladder about 100 from the roof, and j
say loU lrom tne ground. It makes my
blood run cold to think of it. I wouldn't
have attempted it for anything in the
world. But he did it safely, fixed the
rod, took down his ladder again, and
fastened the slates ingeniously from the J
inside over the holes made for his
scantlings, leaving all as good as be
fore. This was in September, 187S,

Here it mu-t be observed that mos
quitoes are especially hard on two sorts
of people. Young ladies and children,
and tinny men, tht'3' sting till the vic

in danger of erysipelas. This is pretty
bad, but we think the nervous persons,
whom mosquitoes sting little, but keep
awake with their buzzing, are even
more to be pitied. They imtl the mos

3'our hand is just over him, and jus

the vicious creature llies awaj and
amuses himself in mid-air. Presently

Hitherto tho absence of fiies that
bite has been one of England's greatest
charms. No other country in our
latitude is so free from them. Norway
and Sweden sutler even nwrc thau the
south from mosquitoes. The mild
Bulgarian dreads them, aud there is a
ghastly story of a drunken Bulgarian
who tied up his wife in a mosquito trap.
The poor woman was billon to death,
and her husband observed in the morn
ing that he had sullered almost as much
as if ho had not thought of his savage
expedient. Greece is, perhaps, mure
remarkable for the insect "whence is
derived the verb 'to lice'" than for
mosquitoes; and the same remark
holds good of the Baden contingent.

be her own affianced lover, who. upon
discovering his loss, had forthwith noti
fied it to the Dortmund police, without
the faintest notion that the theft had
been committed by his betrothed bride.
Investigation resulted in the discovery
of the stolen property in a pawnbroker's
shop, where the damsel had pledged it
for a tritling sum. When brought to
trial she avowed her guilt with many
tears and sobs, alleging that, unable to
purchase her wedding dress, and being
ashamed to confess her poverty to her
fature husband, she had purloined his
watch with the object of realizing a
sufficient amount by its hypothecation tc
equip herself dc -entry. It is plea-anl
to know that this piteous confession war
responded to in a'gallant and magnani
mous spirit by the despoiled bride
groom, who declared that "tho prisono1
was and ever would be his only love,
and that he would marry her out cf
hand if the Judge would consent to sol
her at liberty."' Without a minute's
delay, the tribunal annulled the ar
raignment, and the geucrous lover
carried off his liberated larccnist in tri
umph. It is pointed out by the Levant
ZTcratf that the JL'l.v.OOO paid the other
day as ransom for Mr. Suter represents
2t4 pounds of gold, whereas that gen
tleman's weight probably does not ex
ceed 154 pounds; while 211 pounds
we'ght of gold was given for CoL Synge,
who can be little short of .'Jo pound
heavier than Mr. Suter. Statistically
considered, this is a very striking in
crease in the price of human life in the
brigand market. About 1853 Dr. Mc
Graith of Smyrna, who weighed at thai
period about145 pounds, was ransomed
from brigands for 400, or 7 pounds
weight ot gold. In lSo Mr. Alfred
Van Lennep, of Smyrna, weighing
about 150 pounds, was ransomed for
1,500, or I'S pounds weight of gold.
Thus in 1853 the brigands could corn
mand about 5os. 2d. per pound for their
captives, while in 1SG7 the price had
risen to 200s. Dcr pound. But this
notnmg to tne subsequent increase.
Col. Synge's captors obtained 1,148s.
per pound, and those, of Mr. Suler
l.y'os. per pound. Jc tne hands of
the brigands a captive is now worth.
according to the latest quotation, nearly
1.72 times his weight iu gold.

I'liotogrnnliiiiir the Comet.
Prof. Draper s face expressed his de
light yesterday morning, sooner than
his words, when he announced jubi
lantly that he had sutured a photograph
of the spectrum of the comet. "Ye-,
sir, I have done it," he said, rubbing
his hands, "and am both surprised and
delighted. Tho experiment has never
before been tried, aud 1 had little hope
of Micecs" certainly not of such iniiiie
d ate success. I had an exposure of
eighty-five minutes, which was brought
to an end by the glimmer of approach
ing dawn. The impression, though
narrow, is distinct, and will servo all
needful purposes. In fact, I regard
lal night as a night of triumph."
The dilli -nlties altcndiug the photo
graphing of the comet it-elf were mul
tiplied by the interposition of the spec
troscope, which ditlused still further the
already feeble light. Prof. Drrper had,
however, so adjusted the object glass of
his telescope that all the rays ot light
were brought to a focus upon the nar
row slit ot tho spectroscope. The nlate
was set very near the slit, so that, with
the help of a very peculiar arrangement
which gives every beam its full effect,
but which Prof. Draper does not wish to
describe until he has proved it further,
a very good result was reached. The
spectrum of the coma, which on the
photograph is directly above that of the
necleus. seems. Pro . Draper says, to
be continuous, althougn when he
cNaunncd it, the photograj h was net
yet dry, If there were any lines
at all." they must, he thought, be
exceedingly famt. The absence
of a banded spectrum seems to show
that the'.ire of the comet is
not very high", probably not above tl.c
heat which can be produced on the
earth by artificial means. The coma
seems to be rapidly cooling, as it is fast
subs.ding into the nucleus. Its shape
is still constantly changing; at first it
resembled a bird" with spreading wings;
afterward it took the tonu of the half
section of a wheel; then it showed two
forward curbing arms with an arc in
front of them; and now tne arms have
disappeared, leaving only a faint arc in
front of the nucleus, with a light, misty
appearance between. Prof. Draper's
interence is that the volatile fluid which
blazed up as the cornel approached the
sun is now coudensing again as it re
cedes. The activity in the head is con
tinually growing less also, a fact which
favors the same hypothesis.
The value of the photograph of the
comet itself, the Professor sas, nrises
xrom tho fact that it gives aii accurate
standard tor iuture comparison, very .
much superior to the inaccurate draw- j
ings which have previously been relied j
upon. The photograph of the spectrum
has a further value m that it shows ele
ments and colors which the eye cannot
discern in the visual spectrum. The
tail of this comet shows a con
tinuous spectrum, as those of
other comets have done, indicating
that the tail is composed of solid or
liquid substances.
" Would not the supposition that tho
tail consists of matter in the 'fourth
state' explain the continuous spectrum
equally well?" asked a reporter of the
Well." was the reply, the spectrum
of the fourth state ot matter docs ap
pear to be continuous, but it has cot
been thoroughly investigated: matter
in the fourth state can only be exam
ined in a glass tube, which always pro
duces a green phosphorescence when
lighted by electricity for spectroscopic
purposes Hence the spectrum of the
matter itself is greatly obscured."
When the comet appeared I'rof.
Draper had been making preparations
for six mouths to photograph the neb
ula in Orion. Thi3 is a very delicate
operation, and he was we'd prepared
for photographing the comet. The ex
permenti upon the nebula of Orion,
which have been suspended during the
period o: the cornet, will be resumed
after it his disappeared from theskv.

There Is a good deal of harmless
prattle about tno superior health, tho
strength, aud the wisdom of our great
grandfathers ami great-grandmothers.
It is a common thing to hear old pco-
j pie. who ought to have better sense.
' talking about the good old times and
the higher mental and physical ability
of tho-e who lived long ago. While we
have great respect for the old folks,
living and dead, wo mut not shut our
eyes to the reality. The truth is that
people live longer now than ever they
did. The med.cul profusion knows
more now than ever it did: and we
could put into the Held to-day a biegcr
armv of centenarians than our grand
father could in the good old das when
they were young. Moreover, old peo
ple now are much more vigorous than
the old people of times pat. Our pco
ole are growing larger and stronger. It
is not so many ears sinnj the Ameri
can woman "was a slight, delicate
creature: now she is Lill and portlv.
The numbers of singularly tall and well
proportioned young men and women to
be seen in the streets of New York to
day astonish the old fellows who re
member the boy? and girls forty or fifty
years ago. Some persons imagine that
this increase in size is confined to the
children of our foreign-born citizens:
but this 13 a great mistake, for the. in
crc.vcJ growth is general. Certainly
the mixture of races miy have cyruo
tiling to do with it, but whatever tc the.
Cause, it is a fact plainly to be seen by
anv observer.
The greatest known feats 6f physical
strength and enduran e are recorded
to the crcd.t of theyonng men of this
age; and. indeed, it is hardly too much
to assert that the greatest runners, the
greatest walkers, the greatest jumpers,
the greatest swimmers, the greatest
oarsmen, the greatest weight-lifter.
the greatest gymnasts, the greatest
boxers, the greatest fencers, and the
heaviest men that ever lived arc among
the living of fo-dav. There seems to 1
lc a universal iacrcac in the growth of
humanity. The heigh', the chetnca
urement. and the weight o! the soldiers
of the immense armies of Europe of
the present time are at least as great as
they were amoagthe picked men of th
much smaller European armies of fifty
years past, clearly showing that the
average man of" to-day is a big
and as rtrong as the picked
man of long ago. The fact stares
us in too face that the grown-ap ons
and daughter of the old people of thu
country are. as a role, bigger and
stronger than their father and moth
ers were. An ordinary-sized English
man finds considerable difficult-- in
